In life we protect the things that are important to us. That can include our family, our health, our home – and for a practicing physician, that should include your income.
That’s why there’s disability insurance – to help provide income if we get ill or injured and can’t work for a long stretch of time.
Balancing Income Protection and Cost Consideration
For many physicians, however, the cost of disability insurance can be a consideration. To that end, we developed the TMA Member Long Term Disability Plan issued by The Prudential Insurance Company of America.
This is our most cost-effective disability insurance plan. And whether you currently have disability insurance or wish to get coverage for the first time this can be a cost-saving way to help protect your income.

Firstly, there are exclusive rates for TMA members. These are group rates so they’re typically lower than those for an individual plan. On top of that, there’s a 25% premium statement credit. This further reduces your premium rate by an extra 25%.*
